Well a new image should have been uploaded hours ago but my day was disrupted when I was asked to work a full day! Yes I know a full 8 hours. I work for a homeless charity and today we were doing a collection at Bath Races. Horse racing that is. Volunteers were to do it but it was a bit last minute so I was roped in. Well I have just got back from standing in the damn cold for 4 hours shaking a bucket. My joints ache and I am froze to the damn bone but it was fun. Aren't jockeys small? My god for a minute I thought I was experiencing child exploitation....I swear their legs were about as thin as my wrist....they must bloody starve themselves looking at the way their heads, nose and ears seemed way big for the rest of their bodies...it was comic to look at for sure. So that eased the pain a bit and then there were the fashion victims who obviously decided a long time ago that today was for short skirts, thin tops and high heels...and there were women dressed like that also! So that was funny also to see them blue from the cold the high heels caked in mud...well you get the picture! It sustained me through the pain.

Another from Crete and another from the mountain village of Μεταξοχώρι (Metaxochori) way out at the end of nowhere. You remember the village that is slipping down the hill? Anyway I knew that there were a stack of interiors to explore here so I was back there with that in mind really. I wasn't disappointed....many photos taken, a few places returned to and many earmarked to be looked at next time. I even managed to gain access to places that on the last trip had been secure. No forced entry I hasten to add but perhaps some other photographer had preceded me...who knows! Fancy a wander around the area? Yeah of course you do! Here's an aerial view. There are more from here just trying to ease them out so as not to bore you to death!

The boy with the thorn in his side
Behind the hatred there lies
A murderous desire for love
How can they look into my eyes
And still they don't believe me?
How can they hear me say those words
Still they don't believe me?
And if they don't believe me now
Will they ever believe me?
And if they don't believe me now
Will they ever, they ever, believe me?
Oh ...

The boy with the thorn in his side
Behind the hatred there lies
A plundering desire for love
How can they see the Love in our eyes
And still they don't believe us?
And after all this time
They don't want to believe us
And if they don't believe us now
Will they ever believe us?
And when you want to Live
How do you start?
Where do you go?
Who do you need to know?
